Come gather 'round me neighbors and listen to me song,
I'll tell you of me troubles and I'll not detain you long;
For sorry was the moment that ever I drive a tack,
Or laid down me Brussels carpet, in McCormick's Irish flat.

For the Halys and the Dalys, the Flynns and McElroys,
They nearly drive me crazy with their babies and their noise;
There's a Custom-house inspector and a County Democrat,
And all live down together in McCormick's Irish flat.

Sure I hangs out me washing when the weather it is clear;
Be jingoes, it is stolen by the gang that's in the rear;
Arrah! 'pon me soul, they climbed me pole, took an undershirt of Pat's;
Ah! last night at nine they cut me line in McCormick's Irish flat.-Chorus.

They light bonfires in the street and fill the room with smoke-
Do you know, Mrs. Dugan, me old man would like for to choke.
If you send out for a pint of ale, they'd talk of this and that;
On every flight there is a fight in McCormick's Irish flat.-Chorus.

Of a hot night in the summer time they never let me sleep,
For they're singing "Annie Laurie "out on the fire-escape;
Sure I can never close an eye between them and the cats;
For every brick there is a Mick in McCormick's Irish flat.-Chorus.

'Tis in the Fifth Election, me boys, we hold our grip.
All bundled, boys, together, far down, high and tip,
We sweep them all before us, bold, solid Democrats;
Five hundred men registered from McCormick's Irish flat.-Chorus.
